The First Results Of Molly’s Hair Restoration Project!

Madison here! Today I got the first results of Molly’s hair. For those of you who don’t know, I’m trying to restore her hair.

IMG_4671This is what it looks like all brushed out and still damp! I am going to curl it!

*a few minutes later*

I just can’t get the look I want with a curing iron. It turns out…sorta funny.ย Like, seriously funny. Like, seriously funny like funny weird and not funny ha-ha. Like, seriously funny like funny weird and not funny ha-ha like so funny I forgot to laugh kinda weird and funny and not funny at the same time. LOL ๐Ÿ˜›

IMG_4672So using markers and bobbypins as home-made curlers, I will curl her hair this way like I did here and here.

IMG_4673*hours later..*ย And I took them out! Don’t her curls look beautiful?

IMG_4674They are so gorgeous! One curl didn’t turn out right so I’m re-doing that one.

IMG_4682I DROWNED it with water to try and get it to curl this time. :p

IMG_4691Well, that curl dried hours later and I took it down! Her hair looks soooooo beautiful, I love it!

IMG_4692Molly said she was in need of a photoshoot and I thought so too! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s been a long time since I’ve given some special attention to my first girl. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_4693Look at those wildflowers! They are popping up everywhere, and not just those tiny purple ones. White ones, yellow ones (really weeds ;)) and big purple ones! Springtime is here, yay!

IMG_4694I love the tree in the background. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_4697Pretty girl ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_4698Look at the flower in her hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_4699Well, the curls definitely won’t stay forever so once I savor the look of these curls for as long as they’re ‘new’ to me I will braid her hair, dip the braids in boiling hot water that has cooled for five minutes, and they’ll crimp and wave like that (hopefully.) Then I’ll (hopefully) get the look I really, really want!

What do you think of Molly’s restored hair? The Downy dunk did wonders. Her hair is so much softer, and that brunette color is BACK instead of that raggedy dirty blonde! The ends of her hair aren’t so rugged and split-end like, either. I would love to know if you have restored your doll’s hair before. If you have, what is your favorite method to use?

Have a great doll-filled day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh. My. Gosh. SHE’S STUNNING!!! I love that 7th picture, it’s beautiful! I’m so glad the Downy dunk worked! I would have been SO scared if I’d had to do that to one of my dolls. I’d probably have been trembling every time I had to spoon the Downy on them! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Kit and Molly say Congrats to you and Molly! Now Molly’s begging me to take out her braids so she can see what she looks like with her hair down. Her braids are getting messy, too. Maybe I’ll work up the courage, I don’t know. After all, I have to wait until July to get her braids redone at AGPNY. Oh well! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Congrats again on Molly’s be-YOU-tiful hair!

      Aw, thank you! Of course Molly says thank you too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know, I was scared at first, but then through the Downy I could see her hair getting better, not worse, so I wasn’t scared anymore. ๐Ÿ˜€ My advice – Take the BEST possible care of your dolls hair so you won’t need to do Downy dunks in the future! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Molly and I thank Kit and your Molly both! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hehe! Whatever you do, there’s always a way to make sure her hair stays nice. ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thanks again! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love the way it turned out! I will have to do this to my dolls hair! I also found out a new method to curl dolls hair! (It basically only works on Saige or other curly haired dolls if the curl came out) But I will be happy to tell you if you want!

    Thank you everyone! Her hair smells like Downy know, which I don’t like. It makes my mom sneeze. (something about the scent way too powerful.) yeesh.
    NatKaya – Have you watched Frozen? because ‘the first time in forever’ in your post is from Frozen D: and YAY!! THERE IS? I just checked it out and answered the question. I wonder why in the world they stopped doing hose for a while.
    Abigail – Hi and thank you! Are you new to Delightful World of Dolls? I don’t think I’ve seen you comment before. A BIG welcome to you from my dolls and I!

      I LOVE Frozen ๐Ÿ™‚ and yes that was a totally on purpose Frozen reference ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yeah, it’s very strange that they stopped. I wonder why.
      …and now that song’s stuck in my head ๐Ÿ˜› hehe
